Comprehensive support of the product development process

More than 5,000 SITECH employees at seven production sites in Germany, Poland and China produce seat sets ("Carsets") and seat structure components for Volkswagen Group brands. A car set comprises the complete seat equipment of a vehicle, i. e. up to nine seats. The delivery of the car sets is carried out just-in-sequence - at the right time and in the right sequence to the customer's production lines. In addition, SITECH works closely with Volkswagen, Audi and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles to develop seats for Volkswagen Group vehicles. More than 200 developers across the entire development spectrum use CIM Database: From pre-development and calculation, design, seat cover and foam development to prototype construction, extensive testing and series support, CONTACT's PLM system supports the development process.
